5:49 am – Oh no, no, no. I still have 11 minutes to sleep. Shhh…
6:49 am – Breakfast done, half-way through my morning ablutions. I want to make sure to have time for some extra stretching since my back is a little tight.
7:49 am – Nearly done with my morning commute. Slow & steady is winning the race this morning, that guy who raced past me first chance he got is now back behind me as we merge.
8:49 am – Phone tag isn’t nearly as much fun as tag was as a kid. Maybe he’s an email person.
9:49 am – Oops, almost forgot about my meeting at 10. Do I have everything that I need?
10:49 am – After meeting catch up and if I’m lucky I can sketch out some of my to-do’s while they are still fresh in my head…
11:49 am – Come on lunch, I’m hungry.
12:49 pm – Next meeting coming up.
1:49 pm – I am not sleepy, I am not sleepy
2:49 pm – I won’t think that our team might wrap up the week well, I won’t jinx it. I definitely will not say it out loud.
3:49 pm – A nice stretch of time to do some project planning.
4:49 pm – Finished planning, only 11 more work minutes to the week and then weekend. Don’t want to wish too hard for these next few minutes to go by fast, that seems to have a bad effect on the weekend and its Monday again before I know it. A little email clean up and Monday prep should just about fit.
5:49 pm – Hmmm, what to do about dinner?
6:49 pm – Once again I have failed to do any planning for the weekend. Wonder if anyone has any free time?
7:49 pm – So nice that it is still a little light out at this hour, longer days feel so overdue this year.
8:49 pm – A little newspaper reading, a little TV watching…
9:49 pm – Best moment of the weekend, I can turn off my alarm and wake up on my own tomorrow and Sunday. Here’s to a great, restful and yet purposeful weekend for us all.
